About the Author
Lisa Mason Ziegler is a commercial cut-flower farmer in Newport News; she lectures and writes about sustainable gardening. Lisa tells it all when it comes to gardening and cut flowers. Lisa, a home gardener turned cut-flower grower, began producing field-grown cut flowers in 1998 on the Ziegler family home place nestled in the heart of the city of Newport News, Virginia. During the growing season, her 1-1/2 acre gardens yield thousands of stems of flowers each week. Her flowers are sold to upscale florists and Colonial Williamsburg, at Farmer's Markets and through her programs Garden Shares and Subscription Drop-off that she began in 1999. Lisa shares her knowledge and passion for cut-flower gardening through lectures and writing. Her audiences have included flower and garden show guests, radio listeners, garden clubs, master gardeners, civic groups and others. Lisa incorporates her simplified methods of gardening that inspire and delight.

This book is a great primer whether you are an experienced gardener or new to it. Lisa has practical tips for planting a beautiful cut flower garden. She is also a leader in the Cut Flower business so she really knows her craft. I highly recommend this book.

Concise, easy to understand and DOABLE!!Reviewed in the United States on 20 March 2012
I ordered this book a few months ago. This year I am rather determined to actually start a cutting flower garden. So this weekend I read it through (took about 1/2 hour) and I can't wait to get started! I've been a 'gardener' for quite a few years, but this is the first time I feel like I can actually take a part of my yard and raise flowers to last throughout the summer (here in hot, humid and drought-ridden Virginia!!)!
